For several weeks I’ve been reading posts about Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC), cancer that originates in the salivary gland. The more I read, the more I know we need more information easily accessible. Many have been misdiagnosed for years.

In almost every case of misdiagnosis, the patient felt certain there was something more wrong and persistently sought treatment. Why isn’t ACC recognized by every doctor? Because most doctors have never seen it—many have never heard of it.

Karen White was properly diagnosed. She’s had proton radiation at M.D. Anderson. Does that mean Karen will never see another ACC doctor again? No, it means for now Karen is doing great.

No one can predict how a rare cancer like ACC will react down the road. The good news is Karen is living like before, dedicated to the Lord.  

            Thanking the Lord for every good day,
            Enjoying the moments
            Living life to the fullest.
            She knows her life is totally in God’s hands.

The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1-2 (niv)
